This morning I went and did some work with a woman on her farm.  Out of the blue she asked me if I was "Trumpist" or something.  I told her I was a Republican though Trump "wasn't exactly my favorite person" (which is accurate).  That seemed to satisfy her.

I like the woman quite a lot, but why did she even bring it up?  What would she have done if I was a huge Trump fan?  Would she have been obligated to hate me?  It was just bizarre.  Talking about politics with strangers is just a bad, bad idea for the most part.

You should have said, "No, ma'am.  I don't play any musical instruments."
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Perhaps she feels likewise and is feeling you out for compatibility's sake?

Sure, those exist with the same fervor, fire, passion, and media coverage accorded to people losing their minds over Donald Trump's simple continued existence.

Proof positive of that is the front pages of the various news outlets. Once those three left office, the major media outlets continued, for months, to have coverage continually devoted to them, often in the most negative terms possible, and often at the expense far more newsworthy stories...

CLINTON ORDERS QUICHE AT RESTAURANT! SOUNDS LIKE HE WANTS A QUICKIE!

OBAMA ORDERS A WHITE COFFEE! THAT RACIST BASTARD!

Meanwhile, buried far, far FAR down the page...


"New plague breaks out, millions dead, no cure, this is a potential human extinction event."


Sure. Biden, Clinton, and Obama Derangement Syndrome is alive and well and still burning with bright fury.  ;/

My bigger problem with Obama was the complete and total protection from any criticism the media gave him and still does to this day.  The fawning was and still is nauseating. The contrast to the way they treat Trump and pretty much any R is still shocking.

Of course. Because any dissent, no matter how minor or how justified is...

TREASONOUS RACISISM AND RACIST TREASON!!!

*expletive deleted*ck, even Bill Clinton has been virtually completely rehabilitated by the left-wing media.

But what about the multiple credible allegations of sexual assault levied against Clinton by multiple women?

Left-leaning media: "LOOK AT THE MONKEY! LOOK AT THE CUTE LITTLE MONKEY! NO, DON'T ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT BILL CLINTON, HE'S REHABILITATED, JUST LOOK AT THE LITTLE MONKEY!"

Why do people seem to just assume that old people don't still like to *expletive deleted*ck?

Lately (10 years or so) my response to any feelers is that I have no opinion on anything.

They aren't interested in your opinion,  They're only interested in opening the door to tell you theirs.

Pressing further, they'll ask "But what about (this or that)?  Don't you think (here and there)?"

I tell them that's why we have secret ballots.

Any more probing than that I'm inclined to modify my gentlemanly demeanor slightly and become "paternally firm."

Just talking to and having your photo taken with Trump makes you a villain

Quote
Rock singer Jack White trashed celebrities Guy Fieri, Mel Gibson, Joe Rogan and Mark Wahlberg for interacting with former President Donald Trump during a UFC event in Las Vegas over the weekend.

After photos of all four of them attending UFC 290 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with Trump on Saturday started spreading online, White took to his Instagram account to express his outrage.

"Anybody who ‘normalizes’ or treats this disgusting fascist, racist, con man, disgusting piece of sh*t Trump with any level of respect is ALSO disgusting in my book," White wrote Monday. "That’s you Joe Rogan, you Mel Gibson, you Mark Wahlberg, you Guy Fieri. This is a statement from me, not a discussion/debate. -Jack White III."

The trouble... no, make that "one of the troubles" ...with Lefties is they are constantly tooth-rending and garment-grinding in frustration that the Constitution usually keeps them from doing what they want to do.

So they lash out like children at anything remotely resembling a respectful attitude toward the wisdom of the founding fathers' marvelous invention.

By the way, I've noticed that when "they" ask a question, i isn't to find out what you think.  It's to open the door for them to tell you what they think.

Jack who?
That's my initial reaction as well - Guy, Mel, Joe, Mark and (of course) Donald I know; well, not personally, but I know who they are. I've HEARD of them.

This Jack White III is unknown to me. As were Jack Whites I and II. (White . . . should he even be capitalizing his racist last name?)

Politics aside, Jack White is actually one of the better things to happen to popular music in the past several years. Like most talented entertainers of our day, though, his politics is apparently, uh, terrible.

Pretty much where I am also and this comes from someone who used to listen to Triumph, so I kind of know obscure. ;)
